In my blog post A celebratory start to 2015! (click on the title to read), I mentioned that I received enquiries via email about a book that I received as a gift from my Father a number of years ago. The book is an anthology of poems titled: Flowers from many gardens (click on the title to read my initial blog post about the book). With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought that this would be a perfect time to share a few more poems from the anthology. Enjoy!
For love is a celestial harmony,
Of likely hearts composes of stars’ consent,
Which join together in sweet sympathy,
To work each other’s joy.
Life climbing seeketh Love;
Love climbs more high;
Life follows self-forgot;
Love clasps it, and it’s not;
Life lost in love is life beyond the sky.
But we’ve a page more glowing and more bright,
On which our friendship and our love to write;
That these may never from the soul depart,
We trust them to the memory of the heart.
There is no dimming, no effacement there;
Each new pulsation keeps the records clear;
Warm, golden letters all the tablet fill,
Nor lose their lustre till the heart stands still.
